On October 12th The Winston Chapter of the FFA officially welcomed 6 new members.  6 Freshmen were initiated into the FFA as "Greenhands" at the Area 2 ceremony that was held at Gallatin High School.  The new members enjoyed remarks from State FFA Officer Logan Korff and took the opportunity to mingle with other 1st year members from the Area 2 Association.  Winston FFA is proud to welcome Holly Caldwell, Thomas Kile, Kyler Trimble, Gabe Riddle, Gunnar Goll, and Sam Uthe as 1st year members.  The FFA is an organization that offers a diverse collection of students the chance to learn agricultural, vocational, and life skills that will help them be successful in whatever area they so choose.  Organizations like this are another reason:  It is a Great Day to be a Redbird!

The Faculty of Winston High School would like to congratulate Chandler Asher and Maggie Farrell for being named as our October Students of the Month.  The Student of the Month award is chosen by the teachers and administrators of Winston High School in order to recognize those students who exemplify the excellence we look for in academics, character, and attitude.  It is the belief of the faculty and administration of Winston High School that strong students form the foundation for all of our school's accomplishments.  These are two of our finest students and they are yet another reason why: It is a Great Day to be a Redbird!


On September 30th, members of the Winston High School Student Council attended the Northwest District Meeting at Park Hill South High School.  The students attended an opening session as well as several small group sessions all dedicated to learning the leadership skills and generating ideas to make their school as successful as it can be.  Student Council sponsors Ms. Wilmes and Mrs. O'Dell have really ramped up the STUCO activities the last 2 years and there are many more exciting things to come for the Redbirds.  This year has already seen STUCO sponsoring activities at Friday assemblies, sponsoring a "faculty of the month" award, and starting a punch-card program to increase school spirit.

All of these activities will be added to the many things that STUCO already does such as running our Homecoming festivities, facilitating our pep rallies, and hosting our Fall Bonfire.  When students become leaders of your school, there is no limit to the heights you can reach.  Our Student Council is one more reason why:  It is a Great Day to be a Redbird!
